Our Research Grant portfolio contains programs that cover blood cancer research from the earliest phase of discovery science to translational research that goes from “Bench to Bedside” directly benefiting our patients. We also strongly believe that providing support to today's promising early-career scientists is fundamental to making sure that they will continue contributing to blood cancer research as tomorrow's leaders of the field.

We announce special, disease focused RFPs (requests for proposal) on a regular basis to accelerate research areas with high unmet need.


 

To move the needle further and faster, LLS forms partnerships with other organizations to fund meritorious blood cancer research together:
